1981 - 2008

We are currently working to reorganize and improve our digital archives of our older printed editions of Life on the Pamlico.

If you're looking for a particular edition that isn't listed here yet, feel free to reach out to James or Suzanne, and we'll se what we can dig up.

Spring 2008

In 2008, after falling dormant for a number of years, Life on the Pamlico was resurrected as a component of HUM 120, Cutural Studies. Under the direction of Bryan Oesterreich, the focus shifted from transcribed conversations to more of a biographical narrative. As the costs of printing a physical book had become more than the college's budget would allow, Oesterreich had students prepare digital versions of their article to be published on the college's website, and those articles appear below:

Dutchman to American: The Life of Jake De Jong
John Irvin Morgan: Lending a Helping Hand
"The Critter Getter"
Mildred Tunstall
My Grandfather, Carl Jones
